In brief: Do not use

Codeine is notorious for causing medication overuse and rebound headaches in patients who use it for migraine.
Don't start down the slippery slope! instead, talk with your doctor about effective prophylactic treatment to reduce the severity and frequency of your attacks- there are medications (topamax, elavil) and procedures (botox) that can make a world of difference.
